    Thomas: Rams Interested In Bowles As Head Coach

    Rams interested in Bowles as head coach

    Wednesday, January 4, 2012

    The St. Louis Rams have expressed interest in interviewing Todd Bowles for their head-coaching position.

    Bowles, 48, served as interim head coach in Miami for the final three games of the 2011 season following the dismissal of Tony Sparano. The Dolphins went 2-1 in those games, defeating the New York Jets and Buffalo, and nearly upsetting New England in a 27-24 loss.

    Bowles, a native of Elizabeth, N.J., who went to college at Temple, has been with the Dolphins since 2008 as assistant head coach/secondary coach. He has previous NFL coaching stints as an assistant for the Jets (2000), Cleveland (2001-04), and Dallas (2005-07).

    Bowles also spent three years coaching at the college level at Morehouse and Grambling State. He spent eight seasons playing defensive back in the NFL from 1986-93 at San Francisco and Washington.

    Along with Jeff Fisher, he's the second known candidate for the Rams' job to replace Steve Spagnuolo, who was fired Monday following a 10-38 record in three seasons.

    Bowles may get a chance to be a head coach, but it's apparent Kroenke wants an experienced coach in the mold of Belichick. Interviewing Bowles would satisfy the well intentioned, but rediculous Rooney rule. As others have mentioned, the process is demeaning and embarrassing for both parties.

    Its bang out of order, in this day and age. The NFL or whoever, should be horsewhipped for this.
